Summer is here and as we know, a playlist is required for the cookouts, pool parties, and late summer nights. We mixed a little bit of old with a little bit of new. You need the hits and the classics. Check out our summer playlist!
1) Wild Thoughts.
#repeat Because of course. Just, of course. This song is just fire. Rih can do no wrong. Though we think Tory wouldve been more fitting melodically, Tiller gets the job done. And it’s a smash! And if you were born before 1993, you definitely understand the sentiment and appreciate this rendition because of Santana’s “Maria Maria” in ’99. *Gasp* It was THAT long ago?!
2) 2 Chains – It’s a Vibe (ft. Ty Dolla $ign, Trey Songz, Jhene Aiko)
3) Amerie – Why Don’t We Fall in Love
This will ALWAYS be a classic, the video as well. Because who doesn’t love Amerie’s legs. It begins on the “First Day of Summer.” It’s nostalgic, it’s memorable…many of us have reenacted walking down the street on a warm sunny day…and when that beat drops!? “So many things I’m going through, so much that I wanna do…” Circa ’02. #TeamAmerie
4) Meek Mill – Whatever You Need (ft. Chris Brown)
5) Snoop Dogg – Beautiful (ft. Pharrell)
This is played every. single. summer.
6) Kendrick Lamar – HUMBLE.
7) DJ Khaled – Shining (ft. Beyonce & Jay-Z)
8) Childish Gambino – Redbone
9) Twista – So Sexy (ft. R. Kelly)
10) Cardi B – Bodak Yellow
11) Mariah Carey – Heartbreaker (ft. Jay-Z) Road trip worthy. Windows down, speakers blasting, vocal chords straining…
12) Fabolous – Doin’ It Well (ft. Nicki Minaj & Trey Songz)
13) GoldLink – Crew (ft. Brent Faiyaz & Shy Glizzy)
14) PARTYNEXTDOOR – Not Nice
15) Fat Joe & Remy Ma – Money Showers (ft. Ty Dolla $ign)
16) Drake – Free Smoke That beat just goes too hard.
17) Plies – Shawty (ft. T-Pain)
18) Trey Songz – Nobody But You
We’ll stop here.

According to the Frederick Police' Use of Force report, the department noted "no troubling trends based on any particular characteristic of race, sex, or ethnicity."

"There are certain people who have the magic and certain people who don’t. Just keep going. You’re gonna go through the darkness and confusion and you’re gonna figure out what it is. You can’t rush it. You just have to know you have it. You need to find you and you need to be able to make it work." - Rona Mensah
